Romance of a sari: Draped in love, tradition, and nostalgia

A sari is one such timeless attire that has never been retired from the top of fashion trends. Growing up, we saw our older generation treasure their saris, and with time, learned to love this part of our tradition like no other. For us it is never just about the latest style. No, our saris hold core memories in them; each pleat tells a story. Handloom cotton and Jamdani, perhaps the most traditional of saris, have been passed down through generations.

Saris that are ruling our hearts this year

A sari is one such timeless attire that has never been retired from the top of fashion trends. Many trends have thrived and died in the fashion industry over the years, but the sari’s popularity remains unmatched. Thanks to the brilliant minds of artists and designers, saris continue be a statement outfit for any occasion. Another concept that is trending nowadays within the country is sustainable fashion, where organic colours are used on the cotton saris that are exclusively made via handloom instead of power looms. Another beautiful term that is synonymous to sustainable fashion is slow fashion.
